The twins were here last weekend!
We don't get to see them as often as we'd like, so when they're here, we eat it up!
All four girls had a great time... well at least I hope they did!
We spent most of the weekend outside; playing at a friends house, in our yard, and at a graduation party.
HAHA I love all their different faces here.

I think it was mainly their age.
Neither were good at sharing and Lidia was still a "baby" in Bella's eyes.
They are best friends.
They do everything together.
Bella tells Lidia she's her best friend at least once an hour and it's music to my ears.
I'm so glad too, because it was pretty rough going their for a year when the girls didn't get along.
And it's a breath of fresh air because they occupy each other all weekend long.
I LOVE seeing them play together.
And don't nobody put my baby in a corner. :)
Sometimes she brings it on herself though, being crazy and all.
But, for the most part, most of our weekends with the twins are spent with all four kiddos dancing around and geting along like this....
I first want to say that Matt does have a custody agreement for the twins, and he should be seeing them every other weekend, since they live almost 2 hours away and seeing them during the week is not an option. But there's a number of reasons why they don't come as often as we'd like...the main reason is due to health problems. They were born 3 months premature and have had health issues from the get go. Most of the health problems have been Tori's, with Bella having a few of her own. Tori is in and out of the hospital, on medications, and still receieving a feeding tube occassionally. So the twins' mom will determine whether or not they are well enough to come for a weekend and a lot of the weekends, she decides to keep them home depending on the circumstance. It is sad that they aren't with us very often, but someday it will level out and we will get those pretty little divas on the regular! I just love them so much. They are so sweet. So beautiful. So fun. And hilarious too.
A few things that Bella has said that make this "stepmom job" so fun are:
Me: Bella did you know that I'm your step-mom??
Bella: No you silly goose! You're a CUTE MOM!"
Bella: "Bert, (they call me Bert haha!) I wish you were my mommy, you are so nice and I love you."
Me: (holding back tears) "Oh Bella boo! I AM your mommy. I'm your step-mommy! You have a mommy and her and I both love you so much!"
As much as I love the twins, these two have stolen my heart.
